These naturally dyed blue eggs are
Just imagine how wonderful an Easter table would look with these one-of-a-kind eggs at each place setting? Well, you don’t have to imagine. I set a table using these pretty dyed Easter eggs and I’m sharing it with you! Can you guess how I dyed them? They are dyed using one ingredient and it’s a vegetable! You won’t believe it…
These cloud-like eggs were made with a head of red cabbage!
Yes, that’s right. A red cabbage that is really purple will create a blue easter egg. Who knew?
Here’s what you will need to make these beautiful naturally dyed eggs…
- hard boiled eggs
- red cabbage
- plastic cups
EASY NATURAL DYED EGGS INSTRUCTIONS
Here’s how I made them…
I cut up a red cabbage and put it into a stainless steel pot. I added about a quart of water and simmered it for an hour or two. The cabbage got very soft and mushy. I checked the water level to make sure it stayed about the same. Then I let the cabbage sit in the water overnight in my frig.
To make the blue dye:
Pour the liquid from the cabbage into separate cups. Add 1 TBS of white vinegar into each cup. The vinegar helps to intensify the dye. Don’t worry that the cabbage dye looks purple. The eggs will come out blue.
Discard the cabbage.
Put a hardboiled egg in each
The longer you leave the eggs in the the cabbage dye the darker and more complex they become. I kept the darker ones in the frig overnight.
These naturally dyed blue eggs are just so stunning! The camera does not do them justice!
When the eggs come out of the dye let them dry naturally and then put them back in the frig. They will be ready for Easter morning!
